  • Criminal investigation AFTER employee hired California

    Can an employer run a background check (criminal, identity verification, etc) AFTER a person has been hired and is currently working for the employer? If the employee refuses to sign the authorization for release of information, can they be fired?

    Yes (with auth.) & yes (if don't sign).

    However, you can't single out a person for a background check based on a reason
    prohibited by law (ie age, religion, gender ....).

      I know Betty3 meant the employer cannot single a person out for the reasons given.
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
